They are different cases. Taoba/riña/vala/ābra are in the nominative case, which means they're the subject of a sentence. Taobe/riñe/vale/ābre are in the accusative case, which means they're the direct object of a sentence. Since High Valyrian is more flexible with its word order than English, you need that to be able to tell which word has which function within a sentence.

What is said above is absolutely right. Handling the accusative might be tough for those who speak languages where the case is not a main feature. Maybe this article can help shine a light there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accusative_case
