Ranking for a plural keyword

Hello everyone its me again with another question. I am currently gathering keywords for my site in the World of Warcraft Niche. I came across a couple of keywords using Traffic Travis. On checking Google on a particular keyword, Traffic Travis gives this keyword a 4 star rating with the singular phrase with 135000 searches a month and 90,000 for October

I check on the plural phrase for this same keyword in Traffic Travis and it comes back with a 3 star rating with a search volume of 8,100 and 3500 for october. Knowing the stats from Traffic Travis is it even possible rank for this keyword?

I want to use it in my domain and the front page of my site.

What do you all think?

Thanks

You should choose which keyword gets the most searches out of the singular and plural forms.

Though keywords with a search volume of more than 50,000 are usually too vague so you might want to use long tail keywords. If the plural & singular get similar search counts, then you should split test and see which works best. Unless for some reason using one form over the other was really more relevant. Like apple vs apples; if you're talking about mac then you should definitely choose apple :)
